"This is tough. I have so many different things, emotions that I am still processing but the bottom line is this job that I am in requires complete engagement and complete effort, 1000 percent," Myers said. "If you can't do it, then you shouldn't do it. That's the answer to the question of why.

"It doesn't feel right to do something when I can't give everything and that's what it takes to do what we've done over the last 12 years.

"This wasn't about money," he added. "I've made plenty of money. I got offered plenty of money."

Myers' journey with the Warriors began in 2011 when he joined as an assistant GM before being promoted to GM in 2012. Since then, he has played a pivotal role in shaping the team through astute draft choices, strategic trades, and impactful signings, contributing to the creation of one of the most dominant teams in recent memory.

Under Myers' leadership, the Warriors experienced tremendous success, capturing four NBA championships in the span of eight years.
